Star Sightings

Ok, we haven't updated this in a bit, but I'll try and be more diligent.

As we were walking back to our car after a screening of Sweeney Todd, we saw John Billingsley pumping gas.

We just went to a screening of Eastern Promises and listen to Viggo Mortensen talk afterwards.



Here are the old sightings:

We've gone to some screenings, and seen a few people, like Mitch Ryan again, (very friendly guy), Famke Janssen at the Rite Aid next to the Director's Guild on Fairfax. (08/04).

We also went to a taping of the Tonight Show (08/04)(finally, we've only lived here 4 years, and it's within walking distance from our house), and Kim Basinger was on. Which co-incidentally I know the sister of the writer of her other movie, Cellular.

While we were at dinner for my birthday (07/25)at the Oyster house and we saw Frankie Muniz (Malcolm in the Middle).

Rob was being a tourist and he saw Mitch Ryan (Dharma and Greg) walking around at the Disney concert hall. (07/04)

While at an L.A. Kings game (1/22/04) Rob spotted John C. McGinley and D.B. Sweeney a few rows in front of us, and no we were not in the cheap seats.

With a lot of research, you can always see movies around awards time, we have seen: Diane Lane from Under the Tuscan Sun, Hayden Christensen and Peter Sarsgaard from Shattered Glass, Annette Bening, Robert Duval and Kevin Costner from Open Range, William H. Macy and Maria Bello from The Cooler, Peter Dinklage from The Station Agent, Viggo Mortenson from Return of the King, Johnny Depp from Pirates of the Caribbean, Charlize Theron from Monster, Colin Firth and Scarlett Johansson from the Girl with a Pearl Earring. (Oct-Dec 2003)

Because I'm a big shoopastar, I get the opportunity to hob-nob all the time with my peers. I have seen Lisa Gay Hamilton formerly of The Practice, Mitch Ryan formerly from Dharma and Greg, Minnie Driver, Michael York and Martin Landau. In 2002, I was fortunate enough to be on the nominating committee and saw several movies before they were released, and because the studios are trying to hype them, we also saw many stars after the screening. Such as: Julianne Moore and Dennis Haysbert when they were in Far from Heaven, Robin Williams in One Hour Photo, Jennifer Aniston in the Good Girl, Ray Liotta in Narc.

While shopping in Target I saw Nicole Eggert.

At Starbucks across the street from our apartment we saw Chad Michael Murray.

While shopping at Alberston's acrosss the street we saw George Murdock.

At the Burbank Airport when we were coming back from the marathon, we saw Smokey Robinson.

At the Starbucks in Studio City (on Vineland), we saw Michael Stoyanov who played the brother on Blossom, and Robert Patrick who played agent Doggett on X-files.

At our favourite Hollywood bar, Goldfinger, we've seen Tom Green after his break-up with Drew, and on a separate occassion Alexis Bleidel.

Jimmy Kimmel formerly of the Man Show in Costco in Burbank (11/27/01).

Danny Bonaduce - Rob bumped into him at the gas station down the street and talked to him. Then when Danny was doing his radio show, he mentioned he talked to some guy in the gas station that morning.

Adam Carolla formerly of the Man Show in Glendale Fashion Square.

Joe Mantegna at Gladstones in Malibu (6/23/01)

Dick Butkus - Almost ran over his grandson (who ran out in front of me, while we were rollerblading at the beach).

John Ashton - Detective Taggert from Beverly Hill Cop (I almost ran him over in the parking lot at the grocery store - he was standing in the middle of the road talking on his cell phone - I almost yelled out to him to move, but then stopped in shock that he was "a movie star".
